    I think that a Christmas entertainment contest would be a good idea as it would be an opportunity to try your christmas programmes and perhaps it would generate new arrangements.......any thoughts?

    I would refer the learned gentleman to the thread entitled "Hellish Band Music"...

    ha ha ...fair one........however as a conductor it is very hard every year to choose a new programme ....which also depends on the standard of your band.

    Brasscrest must be quite sneaky, lol! Posting with my username as well ... :cool:
    Tubachristmas is quite well established in the USA. There's a UK equivalent, Tuba Carols, in London.

    There's nothing to stop you putting on a Christmas programme at an ents contest any other time of year.... its been done at Crawley before now.

    Who thought tubas in tutus is a good idea?! :eek:

    Could be a panto event for the kiddies... Might actually bring in an audience... Maybe not such a bad idea.
